A Clustering Genetic Algorithm for Cylinder Drag Optimization

  title={A Clustering Genetic Algorithm for Cylinder Drag Optimization},
  author={Michele Milano and Petros Koumoutsakos},
A real coded genetic algorithm is implemented for the optimization of actuator parameters for cylinder drag minimization. We consider two types of idealized actuators that are allowed either to move steadily and tangentially to the cylinder surface (“belts”) or to steadily blow/suck with a zero net mass constraint. The genetic algorithm we implement has the property of identifying minima basins, rather than single optimum points. The knowledge of the shape of the minimum basin enables further… CONTINUE READING
